Mud Bowl

July 2, 2015
By

I recently read in the Lawrenceburg paper that Lawrenceburg High School is putting a synthetic surface on their football field.  For the past several years the “Bowl”, as it is known in Lawrenceburg, has been subject to poor drainage and it is almost an impossibility to keep grass growing on the field.  No one...

Roger Goodell

July 1, 2015
By

Roger Goodell’s name has certainly appeared too often in the media this year.  If you do not know, he is the commissioner of the NFL.  He is really the owner’s puppet, not a leader.  Most of his decisions seem to favor what the owners want and not what is best for the sport. Domestic...

Area Softball and Baseball

June 30, 2015
By

Congratulations to the area schools who made a great run in the softball and baseball state tournaments this year.  Milan and Franklin County girls both made it to the semi-state in softball.  Ironically, both schools lost 1-0.  I know in the case of Franklin County they were a very young team and should be...

Carmel High School has won a lot of state championships, but boys’ track has not been one of them.  Ken Browner led the Greyhounds to their 2nd state championship this year.  Ken and I are both members of the state track and cross country association board.  Carmel was not able to depend on winning...

What do you do if you are a 3-time state champ as a freshman?  You go out and do the same thing again as a sophomore and lead your team to a state championship.  Lynna Irby of Pike High School in Indianapolis did just this.  When you reach the state level, an athlete of...

By

If you are not aware, Bryan Hoeing was drafted by a major league team this year.  The Arizona Diamondbacks picked Hoeing in the 32nd round.  On the Diamondback’s website they put their reasons for drafting him even though he had the ACL injury from basketball and is possibly facing surgery on his arm this...

Are Times Changing?

June 24, 2015
By

You have heard me complain on this blog about Indiana and Purdue allowing “Blue Chip” basketball players to go out of state to play.  In the past couple of months, both IU and Purdue have done quite well in the recruiting wars.  Recently, Purdue received a commitment from a Texas Juco guard and garnered...

Protecting Fans

June 23, 2015
By

As I am sure you have read or seen on TV, that there have been a number of serious injuries that have occurred to fans watching baseball games.  One lady, attending an American League game, was struck so hard that her life hung in the balance.  As expected, there is an outcry on social...

Unlikely State Champ

June 22, 2015
By

When Hamilton Southeastern’s Francis Ehigbai came out for track this spring, no one expected him to be a state champion.  After all, an ACL injury in his left knee kept him from playing basketball his senior year.  Since his leg was still not as strong as he would have liked it to be, he decided...

School Facilities

June 19, 2015
By

I know I am prejudiced when it comes to school facilities for sports, because I spent most of my career coaching.  However, all people in the medical fields keep telling us that our young people are not getting the exercise they need.  With the fact that all school activities are done with computers and almost...
